Reproductive swarmers of the polycystine radiolarian Sphaerozoum punctatum (Huxley) collected from the East China Sea were examined using light, scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The swarmer cells were about 8-10 μm in length with a pear-like shape and a conical end with two flagella. A nucleus, mitochondria, Golgi body, lipid droplets and, characteristically, a single, large, vacuole-bound SrSO₄ crystal were present in the cytoplasm. Centering on the crystal inclusion, swarmers… CONTINUE READING
